One of the most difficult seasons of parenting can be when our children become teenagers. While this can be a challenging time of transition for parents and teens, you can parent well and build a strong relationship with your children even through the teen years.
So how do we parent well in our children’s teen years? We are so excited to have author Connie Albers as our guest on this week’s episode of The Warfare Parenting Podcast. Connie has over 20 years of experience working with teenagers and has seen the negative impacts of well-intentioned but often misguided styles of parenting teenagers. She explains how our listeners with children in their teen years can guide their hearts and remain a primary influence in their lives. Connie talks about how to raise a teen according to their given strengths, talents, and personality types, as well as how to equip your teen with tools to live a responsible, fruitful life. Who is Connie Albers?
